A Day in Bangkok Time Lapse Video

I spent a few days in Bangkok with Juno from RunawayJuno.com and we put together this photo-motion video over the course of a whole day.

This is the first time I put one of these time-lapse videos together and I couldn’t have done it without Juno’s help (especially in the barber shop). The 939 photos were shot over the course of a day and take us through a trip to Chatuchak market, rides on Bangkok’s mass transit and, and out for a couple meals.

I hope to do more of these in the future. It was a lot of fun to put together. Let me know what you think in the comments.

    Love it! I think you should submit this as a short film! 🙂

    @Bill @Elise Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, it felt good to get rid of the hair. After 3 years, I was not going to let that go undocumented…

    It looks even more awesome in the post. There’s so many memories and so much fun! Thanks to come up with a great idea and let me be a part of it.
    And YES you do look great in the new look!

  5. Excellent! I like it guys. It’s fast and fun and shows the place well. Nice haircut.

    You wouldn’t think it’d be interesting to see what a person did in a day, but it is!
    To take your idea further someone should set out to do as many things they can do in a single day and provide a full video account of it, like flying a kite, participating in a riot, picnic, going bowling, making a cake, eating the cake, feeling remorseful about eating the cake, doing sudoku, watching TV, organizing their socks, praying, then going to bed.
